According to the Fairbanks North Star Borough, air quality conditions are hazardous (Code Maroon, over 300 ug/m3). Hourly concentrations earlier in the week spiked over 1000 ug/m3. According to AIRNow, hazardous conditions are expected to continue.

SRCA Functions July 2002 (C. Schaaf, A Strahler---Boston College

In the spectral calibration mode, a light source from the integrating sphere (SIS) provides illumination for the visible (VIS), near infrared (NIR), and short wave infrared (SWIR) bands. The light coming from the integrating sphere is bounced off of a toroidal (3-D doughnut shape) relay mirror into the entrance of a modified Czerny-Turner monochromator (an instrument that obtains the light of one wavelength or very narrow band of the light spectrum). The monochromator contains a motor-driven grating/mirror assembly, which is used in conjunction with a filter wheel (to block out-of-band energy) to diffract the light into one of the VIS, NIR, or SWIR bands. The diffracted light coming out of the monochromator is then sent into a Cassegrain telescope that moves the light to the right elevation and angle (called collimating) and then bounces it off of a fixed-fold mirror onto the Scan Mirror. The light from this point moves through MODIS’ main optical system and onto the detectors where the resultant calibration data is integrated into the general scan data. At minimum, one SRCA spectral wavelength measurement is taken per revolution of the Scan Mirror. Computer modeling has shown that the accuracy of this calibration method is within 1 nanometer.

The SRCA system is also able to perform self-calibration by inserting didymium glass near the light source and sensing the SRCA’s response profile using a photodiode at the exit of the monochromator. In the radiometric calibration mode, the entrance and exit slits to the SRCA are open and a silvered mirror replaces the grating. This difference makes the monochromator into a relay, where light from the integrating sphere is sent to the entrance aperture for the calibration of MODIS’ reflective bands. In this mode, the SRCA is designed to provide six radiance levels that are stable to within one percent over an orbital period of 100 minutes. This stability is achieved by a radiance feedback loop that is based on input from a temperature-controlled photodiode.

In the spatial registration mode, the entrance to the monochromator is open, and a reticle pattern (a grid or pattern that establishes scale or position) is placed at the exit of the monochromator. In addition to the VIS-NIR-SWIR illumination, the radiation from a resistive heater is coupled into the system via an ITO dichroic beamsplitter (splits the light into two colors), which provides energy to support the spatial registration for the thermal bands. The specially designed reticle patterns at the exit slit of the monochromator are then projected into the MODIS optical system, which are then re-imaged and scanned by the various FPAs to generate the data for the spatial registration algorithm. The result is a record of the FPA spatial registration over the life of the instrument, which is very important to demonstrating MODIS’ reliability.
